China's tablet market in the first quarter of 2020 will decline by 30.1% year-on-year, and the decline in shipments in the second quarter will slow down, down 14.1% year-on-year, IDC said in a report released today.
IDC said that the new coronavirus epidemic has had an important impact on the Chinese tablet PC market. In the first quarter, shipments in the commercial market basically stagnated, and consumer market demand increased significantly.
However, the channel's insufficient pre-judgment caused insufficient stocking, and tablet brands in the market have been out of stock.
This, coupled with resumption of work and upstream supply issues, has led to tablet shipments not meeting demand.
IDC believes that the "new coronavirus" epidemic will affect tablet PC shipments in the first half of 2020, but in the medium and long term, it will provide tablet PCs with education, future work, medical, entertainment, and online live broadcast. Bring new business opportunities.
This is because the use of tablet computers in the education industry will be more extensive. In addition, enterprises will pay more attention to the construction of "future work", accelerate the increase of terminal devices such as tablet computers, and the construction of hospitals / medical institutions will increase the demand for tablet computers.
